  • le révélateur – extreme events – root strata

    $17.00 Add to cart

    Five years after founding Le Révélateur, Montreal-bred musician Roger Tellier-Craig returns to Root Strata with Extreme Events, a collection of dense sonic studies that betray a futuristic and timeless beauty. Alongside collaborator Sabrina Ratté, who creates the project’s videos and live visuals, Le Révélateur operates at the ideological intersection of audio and visual, analog and digital, nostalgic and anticipatory, human and machine. Extreme Events is characterized by complex rhythmic asymmetry and twinkling aesthetic resonance — ultimately a prescient re-vision of hypothetical cyberpunk futures realized in the desert of digital decay and burgeoning artificial ecologies.


  • duane pitre – origin – root strata

    $18.00 Add to cart

    the entirety of Origin’s musical material is comprised of the vibrating strings of Pitre’s ensemble of bowed “harmonic-guitars,” which are unconventionally strung electric guitars (utilizing multi-unisons) tuned to intervals corresponding with the Harmonic Series, a.k.a. Just Intonation. No effects processing (pre or post) was used in this recording. All effect-like qualities result from the multi-unison strings (phasing), sympathetic vibrations, combination/difference tones (of the chosen just tuning), and natural acoustic phenomena as such.

    Edition of 300 LPs in full color jackets with coupon for DRM-free MP3s of the entire album.


  • vestas – forever falling toward the sky – root strata

    $14.00 Add to cart

    ” Forever Falling Toward the Sky is the first ever release by Bay Area based Vestals, AKA Lisa McGee. A taught set of haunting electric ballads, these five tracks weave together a number of layered guitars and vocals into a smokey tapestry of blown electricity. Rather than the ephemeral drones McGee has been involved with recently, most notably the group-mind ensemble Portraits & the duo Higuma, Vestals retains the clarity of song, with these hypnotic gyms having been slowly carved out over a year of recording & mixing. Filled out with drum machine & bass, Forever Falling Toward the Sky really does have the feeling of a group completely jelled, hammering out feedback in a California basement, high on guitar worship & sunsets.” Edition of 300 copies, featuring guest appearances by Evan Caminiti (the Barn Owl dude!) and Trevor Montgomery (Tarantel).
